The Village will need another big or medium box draw. Whats out there that could make a realistic presence in Augusta?

The development agreement for VaR is available as an attachment on the agenda for next weeks committee meetings.

It says that the project is to be 3 stages: Costco, Phase 1, and Phase 2.

The Costco will develop about 16.5 acres and should be completed by the end of the year.

Phase 1 is about 12 acres located along River Watch between the extension of Alexander Drive into the property and the Comcast building. It will be developed into outparcels (restaurants, retail, banks, office space, and hotels).

Phase 2 is about 82 acres and is supposed to include large-format retail, specialty retail, restaurants, and 'other development uses'.

Rainforest Cafe, Hot Topic, Jeepers, American Eagel outfitters, DEB, Burlington Coat Factory, IKEA, Express, GAP, Kohl's, Marshal's, Windsor's,Bass Pro Sports, Gander Mountain,Games Workshop, Spencer's, Things Remembered..I could name a bunch of stores that usually draws in shoppers well.


Diversity of styles, cost values, and reason to linger and spend is the key.

Augusta Mall did a good job of gobbling up some of those stores listed and even bringing in some new ones when the Promenade opened. With the news of Bass Pro coming out today it will be interesting to see what happens with retail around Augusta

The Augusta area pretty much offers all of those except for DEB, Ikea, Bass pro Sports, and Gander Mountain..

Gander Mountain was relocating to the Carmax area before the recession. I haven't heard much about the store since then.. I think you need a metro of atleast 1 million in order to attract an IKEA.. Augusta's metro area is listed at 556k in 2010....
